Annual Pancake Breakfast at Menlo Park Fire District headquarters set for Oct. 6

by Contributed Content on October 1, 2018

The Annual Pancake Breakfast, benefitting the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation, will be held on Saturday, October 6, at the Menlo Park Fire District Headquarters (300 Middlefield Road).

This family-friendly community event is co-sponsored by the Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula, Inc. (JLPA•MP), the Menlo Park Firefighters Association and the Stanford Park Hotel. The Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation is a nonprofit organization built to enhance the quality of life for burn survivors and promote burn prevention .

Volunteers will be flipping pancakes and serving breakfast at the Menlo Park fire station from 7:30 am to 11:00 am. Advance ticket purchase is not required, but a suggested donation of $10 per adult and $5 per child is requested.

“The Pancake Breakfast and open house at the fire station is a family favorite every year,” said Fire Marshal Jon Johnston of the Menlo Park Fire District. “It’s a pleasure to partner with the Junior League and other local community organizations to raise money for this worthy cause.”

Last year’s breakfast raised approximately $10,000 for the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation and organizers hope to top that number this year.
